5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide to monsters of the deep
The Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents and Other Mystery Denizens of the Deep is probably the most important contribution to its field since the publication of Bernard Heuvelmans' classic, In the Wake of the Sea Serpents.

3.0 out of 5 stars FIELD GUIDE
I'm a convinced cryptozoologist and I found the book very informative and interesting. I was, however, disappointed with the basic production and the few line illustations. There is a real need for photos in a 'field guide'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide to monsters of the deep, 28 Jan 2005
This review is from: Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents: And Other Mystery Denizens of the Deep (Paperback)
The Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents and Other Mystery Denizens of the Deep is probably the most important contribution to its field since the publication of Bernard Heuvelmans' classic, In the Wake of the Sea Serpents. At 358 pages, the book is packed with information on a whole range of serpent encounters spanning both the globe and the centuries. Coleman and Huyghe's title is a scholarly one, but is written in a style that both the newcomer and those that have long been fascinated by its subject will enjoy. I think it's important to stress, too, that the authors obviously care passionately about their research and Field Guide is not just "another" book on monsters. Rather, Coleman and Huyghe - following in Heuvelmans' footsteps - have examined the available data both long and hard, and have proposed their own classification of elusive animals that they believe explains the sea serpent and lake monster mysteries of our world. To give you a couple of examples, there are sections in the book on giant octopuses; terrifying creatures resembling huge alligators (classified in the book as "Mystery Saurian"); still-surviving dinosaurs; gargantuan lizards; Manta Rays; and even giant beavers! Not only that: the book is literally packed with little-known accounts and sightings, provides data on the top places to see lake monsters and sea serpents, and includes much welcome drawings and diagrams of the beasts in question. If you're even remotely interested in its subject matter, I'd urge you to grab a copy of this book right now. Surpassing Heuvelmans' mighty tome, The Field Guide to Lake Monsters, Sea Serpents and Other Mystery Denizens of the Deep is the definitive book on the unknown creatures that lurk beneath the waves.
